2 am

You’ve come to take me again

 

Your heel prints upon my mattress 

My peace turns to your madness

I become as wee as the little hare Alice

 

Creeping in the shadows of my blind spot

There is always the same nagging thought

Spreading faster than black rot

It bites into my flesh leaving the blood to clot 

 

For I am but a prisoner of bone and cells

Always falling victim to the alluring ways of your spells

 

They blur and bleed into each tranquil dream

Poisoning myself made heaven

With your 

Bewitching venom

 

3 am

You’ve made my room your den

 

Tugging me down off my pillow
My nausea creeps and comes with a bellow 

The blankets torn away like thin phyllo

 

Never going away till you're done

My terror is your ready made fun

For your only enemy is the punctual sun

However before then I can only wish to run

 

For I am but a kite in ballet slippers spinning about

Always helplessly gliding through the ceiling air with the same peculiar route

 

It's a violating feeling that seeps through my sickened flesh

Leaving me weary at your never-ending vendetta

With your

Bewitching venom 

 

4am

You're an enemy more inescapable than wicked men

 

I now fear what is supposed to be a peaceful escape

Never will I know your exact shape

My sanity you pluke off me like a grape

 

I try to say no before you start

You are of no heart

There is no beauty in your art 

In my life you are sadly a part

 

For I am but your unwilling person

Always you are trying to lengthen our song by putting another verse in

 

It is what haunts me even when you’re not here

You will always be a soulless being that will never be welcomed

With your 

Bewitching venom
